PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Looking to get started with project based learning? This project would be a great way to introduce it to students and get a feel for how you will have to craft future PBLs you write. Here is the student challenge - Your class has been contacted by our Student Council to determine what charity is most deserving of our fundraising and donations this school year. Your group will research and select a charity and create a presentation to communicate this information to the student council.

Items included in the bundle:
• Student handout
• Research notetaking document
• Teacher lesson plan (read aloud, info graphics, sample charity videos, turn and talk activities)
• imovie rubric

This Charity Project was created as a Project Based Learning unit to integrate learning standards from different content areas for Middle School.

However, this project can be easily modified to focus on specific learning targets and content areas for Math, ELA or Social Studies.
